'The hitherto-untold history of this unit reads like a 'Boys Own' Adventure - a unique factual story which reveals as much about panic and paranoid Australia in 1942 as it does about the pioneering spirit and remarkable endurance of a curious mixture of young hand-picked volunteers.' ( taken from dust jacket) This book has been pieced together from over 100 personal interviews from veterans.
